Name that Classic Song

August 27, 2018

Dear Readers,

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVCoGNIZMR0

This is a live recording of a 60s classic that I liked to play in my Box Office Concerts, but I never got around recording it in my 150 song OUTSIDE THE BOX set of 9CDs – now streaming everywhere.

Can you name it, and the group that made if famous?

See what you think, vote thumbs up, and share if you like.

Two Music Videos

April 14, 2018

Dear Reader,

Two new youtube videos.

Two rough music videos recorded live. These are previews of songs I hope to record in a studio later like my 9 albums, 150 songs.

GOODBYE TO WAR (youtube video) 1:14 long

Protest song. Though I’ve written 1,900 songs this is one of the few protest songs. But it just seemed due. Remember too that mainstream radio does not play any protest songs ever! That’s part of the music (and arts and media) revolution.

LULLABY (youtube video) :30 long.

This is a Mother Goose Rhyme with a melody I wrote and sang a cappella.

My 1,900th Song – Youtube

April 8, 2018

March 19th, I wrote my 1,900th song titled “I Was There”

This turned out to be a very short, crisp, almost baroque, guitar instrumental. Simple as can be and less than one minute long.

There are two short different passages, the first then the middle and a repeat of the first

Take a listen on this short Youtube video.

(NOTE: it’s easier to record it first, then film it. Can’t do both and get a good version!)

My 1,800 Song

August 24, 2017

Composed my 1,800 song last month on July 25.

When I write a song, I write the music first, later the lyrics. This song is just music now. The working title is ‘Take A Breath”. This (c) song, #1800, is pictured below.

When telling people about my compositions, I usually say something like this. Without a hit song you don’t have much of a music career. With one you have one for life.
Just look at all the one hit wonders that YOU know about. Then I add, how many famous musicians do you know that have never had a hit song?

Then I would go on to say this. With all my songs (rock, pop, country, folk, rockabilly, bossa nova, classical, jazz, instrumentals, etc. etc. We can find one to fit your taste. For starters, I’ve got over 200 videos on youtube, 9 CDs streaming all over the net, just look.

Then I would usually add that there are very few good composers out there. 99% of musicians should no more write their own music, then build their own cars to get to their concert hall. I am one of the few that has a proven ‘record’ made over 50 years.

But NOW I say:
FORGET WHAT I SAID, NOTHING MATTERS, GOOD MUSIC IS WASTED, NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE YOU DON’T HAVE A CHANCE!!! (and that message deserves every cap.)

That is the current truth with 3 CEOs that control 80% of the music industry. When the world decides music deserves better and has had enough of the way that the music business is now – Radio is just ads, concert tickets are a rip off, the music media is just press releases, awards shows seem fake, online streaming sales never get to the musician, music never changes, always the same few promoted over and over, and there is never news of the alternative to all this – then a hit song will count.

Till that day comes, we can only BAND together to help all musicians. The choice for you is clear – either support 3 old men, or support everyone else.
